In the Scottsdale area, the cost to paint your home by a Scottsdale painting contractor will range from $.090 – $1.95. This is the general range you should look at paying and is based on a PER SQUARE FOOT basis. Of course, you should always get several bids since some painting contractors will charge you more just because you live in Scottsdale. Also, home decorators will typically be above the $2 per square foot fee since they may pad the bill from the painting contractor in order to make more money for themselves.
WHY DO HOUSE PAINTING COSTS VARY
House Painting costs are not hard to figure out. The Painting Materials and the profit margin of the Painting Company are the two biggest factors in setting the price of painting a home. This is because labor costs are generally the same in the Valley for all contractors. Plus, a contractor which does not have a license will normally be at the lower end of the pricing scale.
WHY THE BEST DEAL IS NOT THE BEST
Like they say, you get what you pay for! I know a customer that went with the lowest bid and now has to have his home painted again after only 3 years. The client did not realize that the painter watered down the paint and used less material then was actually required for his painting job. Since having his home painted, the color has faded dramatically and then contacted us to have his home repainted.
GET YOUR PAINT QUOTE IN WRITING
Always get your house painting costs in Writing. NEVER, NEVER, NEVER have your home painted without a written agreement. And make sure you read the fine print and what the Painting Warranty covers! YES, reputable painting contractors all provide a Painting Warranty with their work.
